The summer drought isn't a problem yet for Washington CH residents.
Three pieces of legislation on first reading and a update on the water supply for city residents highlighted a very light Washington City Council meeting Wednesday night.
City Manager Joe Denen reported that water supply for residents was still in good shape despite the dry weather this spring & summer in the area. The wells at the reservoir & on the city farm land are still providing enough water to meet the community needs, though Denen added any additional rain would be helpful.
Denen stated that the city council will be updated at future first meeting of each month on the supply & where it was in regards to handling the demands from the community.
Council heard on first reading a resolution to authorize City Manager Joe Denen to enter into an agreement with the Fayette County Commissioners for provisions of Public Defender services...also they heard first reading on two ordinances that would allow for abatement work on public nuisance properties located at 721 Peabody Avenue & 1217 South Hinde Street.
If passed that gives the city permission to clear the property through a private contractor & collect the cost of the work from the owners of the property.
One other ordinance regarding establishing a building maintenance code for the downtown historic business district remained table after it was announced that meetings to gather feedback from owners could be gathered. The first set of those meetings are Thursday July 12th at 2pm & 5:30pm at the City Building.
